Fri Aug 13 2010 Santa Cruz Police Enforce Sleeping Ban at Peace Camp 2010 Demonstration
Peace Camp 2010 Relocates from County Courthouse to Santa Cruz City Hall Red, a participant in the Peace Camp 2010 protest against the Santa Cruz Sleeping Ban, said that she and about 15 other demonstrators moved to City Hall at 3am on August 11th. The Peace Camp had been at the Santa Cruz County Courthouse since July 4th, and persevered through six Sheriff raids.

"We took it to the city because it's a city problem," said Red. "So we're camped outside the mayor's office."

Although Sleeping Bans have been ruled unconstitutional and overturned in several California cities, including San Diego, Laguna Beach, Los Angeles and Richmond, it is still enforced vigorously in Santa Cruz.
